jewelry

hello tag friends! this theme felt challenging to me at first. i had some ideas about using an old earring instead of a ribbon on a tag or using an actual earring to enhance a vintage image. but in the end, i more practically decided i'd add a "jewel" to an image i already have.  circus themes are on my mind because of the current customer challenge "life is a circus" at gecko galz blog.  thus my "be-jeweled" clown:


the clown in the foreground is from a collage sheet by alphastamps. an enamel dot serves as his bright shiny earring.  the fussy cut clown man and woman in the background, along with the "au cirque" banner are by gecko galz.  the background paper is from moonlight journey.  there's a bit of paris themed washi tape on there too. and i was delighted to find a little piece of harlequin-design ribbon in my stash to complete this piece.

i like how this turned out.
love to all.
